    Nothing (makes) a man commit to a woman. Commitment like love and affection are things that are given (freely). Promise + Time = Commitment
    Everyone seems to have their own definition of commitment. Some people feel anything less than marriage is an "un-commited relationship" and there others who have lived together for 20 years in a happy monogamus relationship that consider themselves to be in a "commited relationship". What may cause one man to decide he wants to get married will vary from man to man.
    Keep in mind marriage/weddings are not something most men grew up dreaming about as little boys. In fact at most weddings the groom is little more than a prop. The audience only gets on it's feet when the bride walks into the room. A man who is "in love" with a woman is not going to (love her more) because her title has been changed from girlfriend to wife. Marriage is not a priority for most men and especially those under the age of 32.
    In fact couples who are dating in an "exlusive relationship" have the same expectations of one another as those who are married. With a divorce rate of 50% one can hardly say being married is more commited than living together. Awhile back I wrote a hub on this topic.

    From my own experience, the fear of losing her.

      I was going to say jealousy, that's pretty much the same thing. Men commit when they can't stand the thought of the woman being with anyone else.

      I think fear is a negative emotion, and a commitment born of a negative rather than a positive emotion is a weak commitment. I don't believe this type of commitment will last.

      I didn't mean losing her to someone else.  I meant losing her from his life.  From my personal experience, men that didn't want to commit or became phobic to monotony, felt a sense of urgency once I gave the ultimatum;  commit or we're done.

    His trust, and commitment to a woman.  Since the bond between woman and a man are not incomplete without these.

    Now a days trust worthy relationship is rare. A commitment or a given word have its strength & strong in olden days. Today, most of the commit are selfish or cheating. To under stand better to the other is required.Other wise whatever told and said become waste. Forgiveness is the best commit, to restore best relationship. Express free...it is the success.

    From my own experience, men will begin to move on from a woman if she withholds sex too frequently, or doesn't seem interested in it. I know this may sound base, but understand I am not trying to say that men are simply sex-crazed animals. Sex is an important form of communication in a relationship between a man and a woman, and sex is the first reason for either party to be interested in the other. Lack of sex will inspire either the man or woman to start looking at other people; we just can't help it.
    I think sex is the foundation that love is built on, so a healthy sexual relationship with your partner will help the overall relationship be more healthy. I think regular, good sex will help a man commit to a woman, although it's not the only factor.

    Finding someone who touches his heart. Now that also depends on the man's background and growing up experiences. If the poor guy has unsolved issues, chances are there won't be a happy ending.

    “Men don't settle down because of the right woman. They settle down because they are finally ready for it. Whatever woman they're dating when they get ready is the one they settle down with, not necessarily the best one or the prettiest, just the one who happened to be on hand when the time got to be right. Unromantic, but still true.” i think this quotes summarizes it all. Just be that woman at the right time and place. smile
